of 59 years thinks her husband could use.you think he's crazy? [audio not understandable] >> reporter: call him crazy but there's an entire federal office bureau of public debt that collects money from hundreds of mr. garcias this office in west virginia was set up by president kennedy so citizens can pay down the national debt. this year alone, it's collected 7.7 million dollars in gifts about 90 million since it was established. but 90 million is not that much especially when you consider the federal deficit is 16 trillion and climbing. to retire the debt every american would have to pay 50,000 dollars. but garcia says you got to start somewhere. especially when washington won't. the partyson bicker -- partisanbickering bothered him since 1992 when he suggested a formula tee limb nate the dent. the depression era kid and army vet says he is giving back to can i try -- country that's given him so much. his daughter is collecting cans at work. his grandson drives garcia to friends houses just to collect more cans. garcia knows that his monthly money orders won't avert fiscal cliff. bu
back up, which is exactly what nancy pelosi proposed. we will take her proposal. and mr. van hollen says it will not give one a democratic road or something -- for something your leader proposed three months ago. that as political theater, mr. van hollen. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i wish the outgoing chairman of financial services well. this policy did not make the tax proposal that would -- nancy pelosi did not have a tax proposal that would give people earning over $1 million in tax break. no. 2, the proposal the president has put on the table has trillions of dollars of cuts, which is more than in the cuts on the table and would deal with the sequestered. the republican proposal will increase the likelihood taxpayers have to pay -- bailout the financial industry again. they strip away the independence of the consumer finance protection board so that lobbyists can meddle in exactly how they do their work so that they are looking out for the interests of lobbyists rather than the interests of the american people. this approach we're seeing here is another example of trying to help
tv. mr. rather, thank you for being here. >> i'm always honored to be here. >> susan rice withdrawing her name from consideration for secretary of state. this is not the most unforeseen thing in the world but it still leaves a lot of questions unanswered. what do you think is the most important thing that just happened or that we should watch for happening? >> the most important thing that just happened is that president obama has once again been backed down and away. let's make no mistake. this is chalk one up for the republicans. they can hopefully in private smile, even smirk, wink at one another. they have the professional scalp of susan rice now hanging on their door. they backed president obama down and away. president obama for whatever reasons, and i thought andrea mitchell, a lot of the potential reasons for, it chose not to fight it to the end. there will be any number of people, and not all of them democrats, who say this tells us something about president obama. he was not for a friend, a close friend, a long-time supporter, someone who was eminently qualified, rhodes scho
tennessee. mr. alexander: i speak as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. alexander: i want to thank the senator from california for her comments on the senate rules. i agree, this is something we should be able to talk among ourselves and work out. some of us who have been here a little while, watch the senate, know that it is a unique institution and fundamentally most of us are not very happy with the idea -- i think on bodge sidebothsides of the aisle not functioning as effectively as we really should. we need to get bills to the floor and then we need to have amendments. it's been historically the responsibility of the majority to decide what comes to the floor. and historically the minority, whom that happens twhomever thas the opportunity to have amendments. a couple of things have happened. the minority has blocked bills coming to the floor. that didn't happen. it happened 25 years ago. something else happened over the last 25 years. a procedure called filling the tree was invented by a republican -- by a republican majority leader. senator bob dol
. and obviously she is not taking questions about it under oath up on capitol hill today. >> we heard her spokeswoman yesterday basically say, look you're going to hear from mr. nyds and from nicolas burns this morning and they are speaking on behalf of hillary clinton. should that be satisfactory? we understand that hillary clinton is going to testify in january. how different is the climate going to be in january in the middle of the inauguration and everything else, bret? >> right, i think there are senators up there who are concerned about that. they are senator kerry is saying that secretary clinton will testify in january. of course she won't be the secretary of state. and it may very well be senator kerry who is on his way to being secretary of state. we don't know that as of yet. but, remember, there will be a lot of turn over, there will be probably the inauguration underway, there will be nominations and a lot of things happening here that people may get a lot of different focus than benghazi. but, listen, we'll continue to cover it here. there are some information things that t
'm absolutely sure. these two, actually, made her swell with pride even more. have you thought at all about the date, 1902, why that would be so special? it's the coronation of edward vii. - that's right. - certainly this dear mrs. martin, the nanny, would have shared in the great drama that surrounded the coronation of edward vii. and so i believe the people who went to that coronation would have been given a medal such as this. more intimate friends would have been given a brooch where the date 1902 is laid out very precisely on the lid. but i think if we're gonna get a measure of exactly how intimate this relationship is-- and it very clearly is-- we need to look at these stunning telegrams. it says "handed in at sandringham: mrs. martin at sir john knollys' stable yard, st. james' palace," and it says-- and i think this is full of drama, i really do-- "poor dear baba and tiny mama miss nana very much. hope she is well and not too sad." signed "princess of wales." would that be the sadness of queen alexandra's death? what's the date of that? 25. - yes, i suppose that's absolutely right,

, because it makes no sense. >> reporter: sense is something garcia's wife of 59 years thinks her husband could use. do you think he is crazy? >> well -- >> reporter: call him crazy. but there is an entire federal office, the bureau of public debt that collects money from hundreds of mr. garcias. this office in parkersburg, west virginia, was set up by president kennedy so citizens could pay down the national debt. this year alone it collected 7.7 million in gifts, about 90 million since it was established. but 90 million is not that much, especially when you consider the federal deficit is $16 trillion and climbing. to retire the debt, every single american would have to pay $50,000. but garcia says you got to start somewhere, especially when washington won't. the partisan fighting has bothered him since? 1992, when he first wrote his congressman, suggesting a formula to put down the debt. the veteran says he is giving back to a country that has given him so much. a sense of duty, that is infectious. his daughter is now collecting cans at work. his grandson drives garcia to friends' hous

details, but the state department has said mrs. clinton would stay in the hospital for at least 48 hours. chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta has more on the likely causes of her medical setback. >> we don't know exactly where this blood clot is. they say it is somewhere in her body, related to the concussion. but there is a key point here. and that is that they decided to treat this with blood thinners, anti-coagulants. that's important because if this were a blood clot sitting on top of the brain, because of a -- because of the brain injury, the concussion, blood thinners would be the last thing you want to do. it could worsen the bleeding and would prevent her from having a operation if it is necessary. again, no one is saying that's the case here. but blood clots that are treated with blood thinners or anti-coagulants are typically ones found in the blood vessels, veins specifically. you may have heard of a deep vein thrombosis that can form in the leg. that can be concerning because it can break off and go to the lung known as a pulmonary embow lym embowlism. we know she's
the centerpieces home with you. >> coming up on c-span, california rep and democrat lynn woolsey delivers her farewell address from the house floor. followed by a tribute by other members of congress to outgoing california representatives. mr. speaker, throughout my career in public life and even before nothing has motivated me more than a desire to end wars and violent conflict. when i was a small girl, saying bedtime ayers or making a birthday wish blowing out the candles, i always asked for world peace. so no surprise that over a decade ago i opposed the iraq war before it even started. it was appalling that we would invade a nation that hadn't provoked us, had nothing to do with 9/11, and did not have weapons of mass destruction. it was a lonely fight at that time. but i didn't do it to be loved. it was a matter of principle. barbara lee, maxinwaters, and i formed the triad, woolsey-waters-lee to organize our opposition. we held forums. we developed and out of iraq caucus. we traveled around the country. and in january, 2005, i offered the first amendment here on the house floor calling f
